Wallach (Bates) Invitational Recap

Overshadowed by #SmallCollegeNationals and the Amherst weekend was the annual Wallach Invitational at Bates College.  I’ve always thought of this tournament as the little brother to the Middlebury Invite, as Midd really kicks off the northeast season, and the Wallach closes it out.  Regardless, I really like this tournament because you can see how everybody…

Amherst Rolls the A-South: A Weekend in Review

What a great weekend! I slept late, ate poorly, got sporadic results from the Bates Invitational (more on that tomorrow), and took D3AS down from his Fantasy Football pedestal (Kendall Wright…lol). But perhaps most importantly, the Amherst Jeffs reminded the rest of the country just who the defending national champions are. Amherst, who the writers…

Not-So Rapid Reaction: Amherst/Hop and Match Preview Herst/CMU

If you didn’t know, Hopkins played Amherst today in a battle of potential top 5 and most definitely top 10 teams in the upcoming year.  The match was played on the new Johns Hopkins courts, which is a great way to bring in the season and the new complex.  Thing is, there were no scorecards. …

Women’s New England and Northeast ITA Recaps!!!

New England Recap I am seriously late with my review and am expecting a big cut in my salary, but following the format of my counterpart, @D3Northeast, I did a report card for each regionally ranked (from the spring) team in the New England and Northeast ITA regionals. Let’s start with the much stronger of…

Fall Nationals – A Joint Preview

Fall ITA Nationals technically start in 40 minutes with the play-in matchup of Hewlin (Whitman) and Krull (Trinity TX), so this preview kind of needs to go out.  I’m getting real nervous here writing this paragraph because I’m scared the commenters will behead me and burn me at the stake if this goes out at…

ITA Recaps: New England Edition

  The Blog has been on its game of late, and because of this I’ve been allowed to attend the other aspects of my life. I’ve heard the birds chirping, the wind blowing, and the people laughing. Let me tell you, I can’t stand most birds, the wind is cold, and I certainly hate people. Maybe…

An All-American Interview with Matt Heinrich

Hello again boys and girls and welcome to the 1st interview of the young 2014-2015 season. As you all know, interviews became a nice addition to The Blog last spring, and I’ve been tasked with continuing that trend. I know D3AS has a different type of interview lined up for the next couple weeks, but for…

2015 Season Opening Power Rankings!

Wassuppppp wassup wassup. After an exciting weekend of ITAs where it looks like a lot of our viewers came back for some classic blog action, we decided to keep the ball rolling with our Weekly Power Rankings.  Now, they won’t be weekly here in the fall season because the blog here is all about efficiency,…

ITA Northeast Recap!

Hi friends, it is D3Regional here again for your reading pleasure! This tournament finished up a week ago, but we wanted to save the recap for you and release them all in the same week. How practical of us! To sum this tournament up in one word, it would have to be “Heinrich”. The guy…

NE ITA Day II Recap

NE ITA DAY II RECAP The rest of the country decided to play catch-up with their ITAs today, but until they start winning some championships I’m gonna keep on lauding this region for what it is, the best in the country (even then, I likely won’t change).  I’m also not going to give this guy a…
